The Black Blouse

Regular price $220.00

This blouse is naturally dyed using re-purposed Japanese bamboo charcoal and the luxe peach skin texture of the fabric has fantastic weight. Featuring a 3-button bust-line closure to tackle the gap at your bra line as well as allow you to customize the depth of your neckline. This blouse looks amazing worn with denim or tucked into a sharp pencil skirt. 

The luxe Cupro material is made from up-cycled cotton linter which is a by-product of cotton production. Using cotton by-product saves tons of useful cotton material from entering a landfill. As a result, Cupro is, therefore, a refined natural fibre textile which is biodegradable within 4 - 5 month of being returned to soil at the end of its life cycle. Additionally, the Cupro fabric is produced by Asahi Kasei, who achieved a 99.8% zero-emissions rating in 2019 by using fibre waste (coming from the making of cupro fabric) as subsequent fuel for power generation. When it comes to making the blouse, our supply chain is based around small-batch manufacturing. We order what we can sell and exercise tight control over what we make. Small batch production allows us to build good relationships with ethical partners. Due to the properties of our Cupro Fabric and the use of natural vegetable dye, each blouse has a suade or 'peach skin' look and feel. This is a natural property of the fabric.
